9am - Meet your English speaking driver guide at the main exit of your ship and departure for a full day tour in Cassis & Bandol
The production area of Bandol Vineyard is bounded by a wide ring of hills, the exposure is southerly, and open to the south-west winds, there by enjoying maximum sunshine and aeration.
Starting from the Golfe des Lecques, rising to the Plateau du Camp and then curving towards Le Beausset, the boundary of the production area follows the top of the hills and runs back to the sea to the east of Sanary.
The land is arid, and the yield is low. But it is particularly rich in silicious elements, a feature of many soils that produce “Appellation Contrôlée” wines.
Cassis was a very ancient fishing port and is an interesting village to visit. The village was rebuilt on the old ruins in the 18th century, resulting in a more regular layout than most other medieval villages. Some of the buildings, however, date . A walk through the old village streets will reveal some nice old buildings, some dating back to the 16th century, and some restored with the colorful pastels of Provence. Other sites in the village are old fountains and an open-air artists market. The harbor area is really the prettiest part of Cassis.
